Welcome to Flatbush

With Jamaican, Caribbean, Pakistani, African-American and Latino communities, Flatbush is one of the City’s most diverse neighborhoods. Known for its busy commercial district, the area also features quaint, quiet streets lined with Victorian mansions—especially in adjacent Ditmas Park—and landmarks like the Flatbush Reformed Church, whose current building was constructed in the late 18th century. The lavish Kings Theatre, a late-1920s movie palace that was recently restored, seats more than 3,000 for its concerts and events. Stately Brooklyn College is just to the south.

Things to do in Flatbush

In the life cycle of neighborhoods, Flatbush has almost come full circle. What began as a series of swanky developments in the early 1900s, luring white, upper class residents from Brooklyn Heights, is now attracting professionals and ex-Park Slopers to the stately homes of “Victorian Flatbush” — a term that’s only 30 years old.
